Spotlight On Residents Understood
Happy Thursday! Every day this week I’ve had to stop and ask myself, “Seriously? Is it really only ______?” And that’s coming from someone who (thank you universe) doesn’t live for the weekends. But sitting down is nice sometimes. I remember that feeling, I think, of the bum resting on the soft surface.
In other irrelevant relevant updates, it’s been particularly Seattle in Seattle these past couple days and around here the best cure is fawning over lovely interiors.
Let’s commence that with the work of Residents Understood, a Washington DC based design company started by real life besties Kiera Kushlan and Jessica Centella. They met in design school and the rest is history.
Anchored by smart neutrals, their work abounds with punchy patterns and colors, which read entirely as youthful, spontaneous and fresh far more so than merely trendy.
This first space is like a sip of cold seltzer on an any-temperatured day; it refreshes the senses with its generous hits of yellows:
and provides that back-of-the-throat tingle by way of cowhide rug and leather chairs and such.
My favorite area is obviously the dining one, as if there were any lingering doubts in your mind.
Also the art: I love it.
Next up it’s slightly more sophisticated and polished, without being overly prim or preppy.
Window seat: check. Great sculptural side table: check. Etc etc: check check.
(Check for fruit, check for vegetables, go on.)
And, let’s not discount the unexpectedly green-hued bookshelves. Check that.
This is something like my dream reading corner, what with that similarly-veined abstract, brightly colored art, the leather chair and such.
Our final stop on the tour is the statement necklace of the affair. This dining room should clarify why.
Now I’m going to go give life a big, old, wet kiss and I propose you do the same.
